This simple DIY project was inspired by Final Fantasy X’s Yuna Braska and her cool looking staff.
Figure. Yuna’s default staff in FFX.
When I posted the project on Facebook, I mentioned that I wanted something FF inspired without being too obvious for the entrance of my apartment (don’t want to scare away visitors too quickly).

I found this cool, but plain key piece at my local Michael’s craft store on sale for about $10 (marked down from $35). Originally, I wanted to paint it like a keyblade from Kingdom Hearts. However, the top piece of the key reminded me of the sigils and temple symbols from Final Fantasy X.
I used acrylic paints, both basic and metallic colors, to mimic the design and color scheme of Yuna’s staff. I think it was quite successful and was finished in just one night. It was sealed with my new favorite craft savior: mod podge.

I unintentionally have a slight travel theme going on in my living room (ironic because I haven’t traveled to many places compared to other people I know). So, I was thinking of completing this entrance wall with a quote from “The Hobbit” along side this beautiful Middle Earth map poster that Naomi got for me. I’ll update later if I ever get around to doing that.
I hope you have enjoyed this and hope it provides some inspiration for more subtle video game home decors out there 🙂
